DOCUTAH presents: Lost in La Mancha

This is the story of Terry Gilliam’s 18-year quest to make his film, The Man Who Killed Don Quixote – his version of tilting at windmills perhaps? It made it to Cannes, but the film was plagued by a series of incredible disasters and set-backs. The saga of its production, told in the documentary, Lost in La Mancha, is perhaps far more fascinating. It is a cautionary tale of development hell and a great documentary. The Guardian summed it well last year, when writing about The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. "Lost in La Mancha, the documentary about the troubled production, is one of the finest films about film-making, a testament to the passion, and folly, of Gilliam’s grand undertaking. If nothing else, we can thank him for that.”
